    Or Want You to Be

    I don't believe anyone is perfect so to try to be perfect would be acting in my eyes. Which would make you a fake. I dont need you to be perfect because your not and nor am i.

    I Never Did

    You are human, and I as much as anyone understand the weaknesses and frailities that encompasses. I didn't need you to be perfect.  I just needed and need you to think before you speak.  To actually apply why people cannot be near you for too long without coming...

    Perfection Is Overrated

     All I want from others is themselves. No pretending, no trying to be anything, there's no greater gift than yourself. And that means I don't want anyone else to have to work to be perfect, for me or for anybody either.

    I don't need a perfect relationship.

    I just need someone who won't give up on me.... No relationship is perfect, people aren't perfect. Everyone has disagreements,, we say things in anger we don't mean.But LOVE forgives,,not gives up..

    No One Is Perfect

    Either in personality or looks.  But that is what makes people charming and different.  What is inside matters most.  I can overlook a lot if you are a kind and genuine person.  Just be yourself. Shallow, ******* type people **** me off.

    “We come to love not by finding a perfect

    person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.” ― Sam Keen, To Love and Be Loved “This is what I know. Don't settle for 40, 50, or even 80 percent. A relationship-it shouldn't be too small or too tight or even a little scratchy. It shouldn't take up space...

    But You Come Damn Close

    I just need you.  Just you.  That's it, that's all I ask.  Everything you are, bring it, I'll take it.  I'll take you as you are, and I'll ____ you for everything you are and everythin' you're not.

    Wanted: a Non-perfect Person ...apply Within

    I have never been able to do anything perfectly - probably because I am human, I make mistakes. I do not require my friends, lovers, or partners to be perfect. I think that would be the most boring experience EVER --- to constantly try to live up to the...

    Actually I Prefer That You're Not

    I always try to accept people just as they are and just for who they are. To me that is real and its honest. The truth of someone can be beautiful. Of course we all have our preferences, we know what we like and dont like, and we gravitate toward people who, if notalot like us...

    Just Happy

    I never did see my self as ever attaining Perfection in or at anything but then, I never would have dreamed I'd ever be happy so easily until I read the book HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE by Barry Neil Kaufman.

    Change Is Here

    Earlier today, I had to stop for a minute to think about how much my life had changed. In just a blink of an eye, a month had passed me by. Surely, I had not been aware of just how fast time passes up until now. I sometimes have moments where, to my dismay, I feel uninviting and...

    Really........

    I'm not perfect, so why would I expect you to be? All I need you to be is someone with heart, someone who knows what a treasure they have in me. Someone who knows exactly how much my love means & treats my heart accordingly. That's all I need. You don't have to be perfect...
